Plan of the forest of Mamlorn.
Dowie, David (active 1735-1737)
This plan entitled 'Plan of the Forest of Mamlorn' was surveyed by David Dowie in 1735. It is drawn in ink with a very faint grey wash to show relief on the hills and pale brown for rivers. It covers an area in Breadalbane, Perthshire, south of Loch Lyon. It appears to have been drawn up for the Lords of Council and Session in order to examine the boundary between two landowners. It may be based on a 1732 survey by Colin Foster. A marginal note dated 1736 and signed by Dowie explains he has added a boundary along the ridge of the hills. A further note dating to 1737, written in a different hand, and signed Dalrymple, confirms that this was the map drawn up for this dispute.
